With cute puppies and colorful numbers, this game is sure to engage your early learner. In this game, you place one of the numbers (1-10) on one side of the scale, then count out the correct number of puppies to match and put them on the opposite side of the scale. If the scale balances, you are correct! Once your child masters number recognition and counting, you can move on to some basic addition using the scale. This game is especially well done because not only are the numbers weighted precisely to match the weight of the corresponding number of puppies, but the game also allows for an introduction to weight and the use of a scale. Measurement tends to be a tricky concept for kids to understand, so the more contexts for measurement that kids are given over the years, the better.
